Subject: [PATCH] staging/speakup: fix get_word non-space look-ahead
Date: Fri, 6 Mar 2020 01:30:47 +0100
Message-ID: <20200306003047.thijtmqrnayd3dmw@function> (raw)

get_char was erroneously given the address of the pointer to the text
instead of the address of the text, thus leading to random crashes when
the user requests speaking a word while the current position is on a space
character and say_word_ctl is not enabled.
